Cool Buildings you can see here

include two that are gone: The slender tower just left of center belongs to the Senator William A. Clark House at the NE corner of Fifth Avenue and 77th Street. This Beaux-Arts extravaganza was designed for the Copper King of Montana by Lord, Hewlett & Hull, with a little help from the Parisian architect Henri Deglane; it was completed in 1907 and torn down for an apartment building in 1927. A bit further to the right at the SE corner of 76th Street is the bulbous dome of Temple Beth-El, a Moorish Revival synagogue designed by Arnold Brunner. Built in 1891, it was demolished in 1947, some years after the congregation had merged with the even more prestigious Temple Emanu-El, which built a new building at 65th Street.
